I’ve been an intern for Morningstar Inc. since April, and at our company the dress code is pretty much what you make of it. This sounds like good news (which it is) but at first it was kind of confusing. I never knew if I was too dressy, or too casual. Turns out, with some companies it’s okay to switch up your style and wear whatever you feel comfortable and confident in. This is a simple business casual look which is extremely easy to put together. I mean I’ll be honest, I spend more time hitting snooze in the mornings rather than picking out some extravagant outfit. The flowy olive green top is great for tucking into high waisted pants, such as the black drawstring pants that I paired with this look. The focal point of this outfit is definitely the black and white bag which has some textured detailing and a gold clasp to close it shut. The size of this bag is perfect for fitting everything that I need for the day, and it goes with almost every outfit that I wear to work. The only jewelry pieces that I wore were some faux pearl earrings and a small mint green and gold ring, adding just a touch of elegance to the very minimal outfit. And of course we can’t forget my favorite chunky sandals! These can easily be replaced with close-toed oxfords if sandals do not meet your dress code. The photos were taken outside of one of my favorite places to visit after work, the Art Institute of Chicago! On Thursdays from 5-8pm the Art Institute is free for all residents of Illinois, how great is that? I also like sitting in the areas around the Art Institute during my lunch break, it’s a great way to make the work day a little more bearable!
